With over 4,000 objects, each illustrated with a colour photograph and description, and accompanied by details of size, guide price and date of origin, this comprehensive guide to modern antiques will be invaluable to every interested collector, buyer or seller.

4.0 out of 5 stars So good I bought it twice 6 Jan 2011
This book is informative, well designed and easy to use.
My only grizzle is a lack of information on what maker's marks, backstamps and signatures were used on various pieces which could perhaps help identification of other, similar items. I do realise this addition would bulk it up somewhat and I know there are other books with this information, but it would be quite nice to have it all in one place.
I bought this in hardback and, not being in true touch with all my faculties, bought it again later in paperback, which was a bit daft.

A great buy, with a good selection of collectables covered. Fun to browse through as well as giving a good insight into various items collectability and the sort of price they should fetch.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish 11 July 2011
Like his other books, far from being "A Complete Guide" you get just a load of pictures of items and prices which are usually totally wrong.

There isn't much guidance here.

I think he just lives off his wife's good reputation.

A con in my view.
He's just trying to make a quick buck and has not got much respect for his readers.

It just has everything and is so handy to be able to sit and browse and say, "oh yeah! I forgot I had that!" and see all about it! Super pix, too!
